Tembusu College’s motto The Home of Possibilities, means we value the development of each individual according to her or his own path through life. At the same time we are a learning community, which seeks to give students an intense experience in a nurturing environment. The college administers (and awards certificates for) the prestigious University Town College Programme (UTCP), which augments students’ regular degree programmes by emphasising breadth, critical thinking, and exposure to inter-disciplinary thinking. Our curriculum includes both seminars and out-of-classroom learning experiences.
The college is not themed. Diversity is an important part of our ethos, and we offer learning opportunities across a broad spectrum of interests. We do, however, have particular areas of strength, which are reflected in the backgrounds of our faculty.
A home away from home, the Tembusu College community is 21 storeys of collegiate spirit known for its friendly and welcoming culture.

Six students volunteer at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai
July 27, 2015
In May, six students from the Tembusu Wildlife Association - Sheryl Lee, Nasir Idris, Sheeraja Sridharan, Tan Yong Khai, Goh Yue Quan and Nicholas Chua - spent 10 days at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The purpose of the trip was to gain a hands-on understanding of Asian elephant conservation efforts by assisting the park and learning from the local community and park coordinators.
They wrote a blog about it, in which they offer some thoughtful reflections on their volunteer experience in light of the broader problem of rescuing elephants from abuse. Group members also offer some thoughtful reflections on their volunteering experience in light of the broader problem at hand.
NUS News covered the trip in an article and a video. The article contains an interview with Sheeraja and Sheryl, tWild’s President and External Outreach Director respectively. The video features Sheryl and Nasir, who also had a key role in organizing the trip.
